Pretty sure my neighbor is "jamming" my WiFi signal

Know this sounds kind of paranoid, and I don't know what I'm doing. My neighbor seems unreasonably upset that I have several security cameras outside of my house. Lately I've noticed the camera system seems to be recording selectively? Records ALL DAY, every couple of minutes. Then it seems like it stops recording, usually sometime between 10PM and midnight. Starts again around 7 in the morning. Literally have video of myself going outside and returning to my house, I've walked by the camera at least twice, no recording of that!! Fing is telling me there's two routers on my WiFi network. Changed my password and the name of the network twice and the same thing continues to happen. The router is still there. Bought the premium version of this app. Telling me the router that doesn't belong to me, went online at 24h (assuming that means midnight) went back offline at 6:08 AM. Also showing me my router went offline at the same exact time. My internet connection is working fine, my phone, my TV both are working fine. Spectrum Internet tech is coming to the house in an hour today. I'm not a "techy expert". But I think something is going on. Spectrum told me "it's impossible for me to have two routers unless I hardwired one of them inside my house." No I didn't do that. I have a million screenshots. Try to attach some of them. Any help, advice, or information would be greatly appreciated. Arris router belongs to spectrum, mine. The "mesh node" router believe belongs to my neighbor. Spectrum told me it doesn't belong to them. Yes, I named the network "fatassfakeblond202" named it to describe my neighbor. I'm sure she's aware I've changed it twice. This is driving me crazy. It's illegal! Against federal law, FCC regulations. I don't know what to do??

    Where do you live?? Doubt it's the same guy. Do you have any advice? I'm not sure if this app is very accurate. Told me MY internet router was offline but my phone, and my TV is connected and working fine. I had the internet company, spectrum, come out here. They actually said: there's nothing he can do, he doesn't know what he'd do if the same thing happened to him, he's never even heard of anyone hacking, jamming, or trying to scramble a WiFi signal?? Come on, seriously?? Spectrum told me the two additional routers belongs to my camera system. Really?? Why are my cameras not working properly at the same time every day?? Driving me crazy trying to figure it out. Need some help.

    So the second wifi access point is not your's? Check all your plug sockets for things plugged in you don't recognise. On your main router see if you can block access for the second router's mac address or use dhcp to give it a static ip address outside you main network range.

    Hi, regarding your jammer if a neighbor,, google ‘deauth Wi-Fi’ to confirm what and how he’s doing it Once It sinks in, and you realize how vulnerable and it was really hard, then look up the phrase ‘Deauth Wi-Fi  detection

    And lesson week after starting the project and building my own place I was able to locate who is doing it in and what range using Wi-Fi direct. And now he’s not bothering me because in addition to I also went and talk to the parents and show the data. Snot nosed 14-year-old kid was running Deauth kit on me
